The dedication, hard work, and collaboration of Mini Student’s is paying off – literally! It’s only November and many mini students are already making major strides in giving back to the community… it will be exciting to see the rest of the year has in store!
During the McNair Marlinaires annual “Penny Wars” competition, Mini 11s Chris Heathe (vice-president) and Harvey Huang (president), helped collect 73,000 pennies. A grand total of $1156.24 was raised throughout the “wars”. Proceeds will go to Free the Children’s Adopt A Village communities abroad. Maybe pennies aren’t so useless after all!
